Orange Fireball hovering close to Fermi Nuclear Power Plant

On October 31, 2011 (Halloween) at approximately 9:15 pm, I and my fiancé witnessed a UFO sighting. It was a cool night and clear sky. We had just gotten home from taking our 2 year old son trick or treating. We began to clean up some of our Halloween decorations. I had taken our trash cans out to the road for pickup when I noticed the odd object.

I yelled for my fiancé to look. He looked up and said oh my gosh I see it too. We were so shocked and excited. We were facing the Southeast when it was spotted. The object was an Orange Glowing Ball that hovered over the trees and a house for approximately 1-2 minutes. The object then began to move closer. As it moved closer to us we could hear a faint humming sound. The object was present for about 3 minutes total and then vanished into the sky.

My fiancé’ grabbed his camera out of his pocket to try to take some pictures and video. He was just taking videos and pictures minutes before. The phone kept shutting off and on. The screen was also flashing. The phone is not even 2 weeks old yet and we have never had any other problems with it in the past. The phone would not function properly until about 5 minutes after the object vanished.

We live right on Lake Erie in Monroe Michigan. Fermi Nuclear Power Plant is also very close to my home.
